About the Property

Oceanfront Cottage next to Acadia National Park, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Historic Maine seaside cape with breathtaking views of Goose Cove offers 27 acres of oceanfront privacy and over 1,000 feet of shorefront. Enjoy our sweeping meadow with spectacular sunsets and unobstructed views of the islands of Blue Hill Bay. Stroll down to the waters edge, easily reached without any stairs, to take a quick dip or discover what the tide has left behind!

Our recently restored home with many period details offers a large spacious family room with dining that seats seven comfortably, fully-equipped kitchen to make a fresh seafood meal, laundry room, living room with splendid views of Goose Cove and a first floor oceanfront master bedroom with king bed and a private full bath. The second floor has 3 comfortable bedrooms with ocean views, two with twin beds and one single and a full bath.

Located on the 'Quietside' of Mount Desert Island, we are just minutes from all the wonders of Acadia National Park. You may choose from hiking one of 20 peaks, biking the carriage trails, sailing, kayaking or antiquing in nearby Southwest Harbor or Bar Harbor.


When you arrive home, relax on the spacious waterfront deck with a good book or watch the lobster boats returning with their catch. Don't be surprised to see a sloop anchor for the night in our quiet and protected cove. Your days here will be truly relaxing, memorable and we welcome you!

Car: Necessary

We are located minutes away from Acadia National Park, where hiking and biking are favorite activities of visitors. You will love vacationing here on the 'Quietside' of the Island - away from the hustle & bustle of Bar Harbor, yet in close proximity to excellent restaurants and all the activities of Mt. Desert Island. The Villages of Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor and Bar Harbor plus Acadia National Park's main entrance are a picturesque 10 to 25 minutes away by car.

Located at the end of a private drive on well sheltered Goose Cove, our secluded 27 acres of land also provides plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities. We have over 1,000 feet of private shore frontage with beach, ledges, trails and tidal pools for hours of exploring. Kayaks may be rented locally and launched easily from our beach.

Although you may not want to leave beautiful Goose Cove, you'll want to venture out, as the site-seeing and recreational opportunities abound on Mount Desert Island. In Acadia National Park there are endless mountains and trails to hike or bike, museums to visit, whale or bird watching, first class shopping and dining to experience, and excellent fresh and salt water fishing. Numerous ferry boat rides to many of the islands (Swan's Island, Little and Big Cranberry Islands) Windjammer cruises, hiking and biking. For the golfing enthusiasts, close by in Southwest Harbor is The Causeway Club, a fun and scenic 9 hole course. For a bigger golf challenge, you can play the famous 18-hole Kebo Valley Golf Club in Bar Harbor.

After a full day of island adventure, come back to a peaceful setting to prepare fresh seafood for dinner in our fully equiped kitchen and enjoy a beautiful sunset while relaxing on our deck overlooking Goose Cove and Blue Hill Bay. Explore the many fine shops, galleries, and restaurants just minutes away. See map of Acadia National Park and virtual tours on link below!
